Hands and veins very swollen and painful. My hands and feet often swell (due to stimulants?) but this is extreme. Veins on hands bulge more than feet

Discuss w/ provider: The provider who prescribed the stimulants needs to know about this symptom and consider if it is a side effect or something else. In any case, that can lead to a corrective plan. Perhaps alternatives to long term stimulants can be found - they play rough w/ bodies over time. Call ASAP and best wishes for resolving this. ...Read more

Is it normal to have bulging veins in your feet, legs, arms, hands if you are skinny and fit for the most part? I'm 24 year old male 158lbs 5"11

Is it normal to have bulging veins in your feet, legs, arms, hands if you are skinny and fit for the most part? I'm 24 year old male 158lbs 5"11

Yes: Skinny people have less subcutaneous fat which makes veins more visible. Men tend to have bigger more noticeable veins and physically active people have larger veins to handle the volume of blood required to oxygenate active peripheral muscle in the body. So active men have bigger veins generally than inactive men and most women and in skinny people veins are more apparent. You are normal. ...Read more

I have buldging hard veins in the tops of my hands and top/bottom of my feet made worse by physical activity (eg biking) and also worse at night?

Hard to say: Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health, Dermatologic conditions are hard to evaluate without seeing them in person. Veins get bigger with more use. They can scar if they are injured, but thin athletic people who use their limbs typically have veins that are big and stand out without anything being wrong. ...Read more

I woke up with tingling and numbess in my left hand with vein bulging. What could it be?

A different take:: It's a mistake2 discard the fact that all the complaints came about in the same time.Tingling, numbness is a peripheral nerve irritation. The simultaneous congested vein should suggest the possibility common reason: thoracic outlet syndrome caused by a cervical rib, scalenus anticus syndrome, etc. Etc. The best is to be examined by a vascular surgeon asap mainly if the symptoms persist! ...Read more

They can be treated with sclerotherapy to improve appearance if desired. ...Read more
